netPrefect™ is a multi-platform software solution that uses a combination of in-band and out-of-band management to provide comprehensive monitoring and reporting on all devices across the network, through local or remote connections.

In-Band and Out-of-band Management

All networking equipment such as switches, routers, network appliances and servers can be managed in-band using SNMP protocols, while other devices are managed out-of-band directly through serial ports. By combining these capabilities, netPrefect™ enables you to significantly increase the availability, quality and security of the services you deliver.

netPrefect™ provides:

  • In-depth control of all network devices from a single point of access
  • Threshold monitoring
  • Alert generation based on conditional/relational event handling
  • Network node discovery
  • Full time-stamped audit trail and centralised log
  • Integration with high-level management systems, including HP Openview and IBM Tivoli
  • Higher level graphical representation

and enables organisations to:

  • Reduce costs
  • Improve service quality
  • Maximise system availability
  • Enhance security
